Flamed maple anyone?
My world is in flames
Those are really gorgeous! I think I prefer the flamed in darker finishes, like the one on the left. But they're all beautiful!
I don't think they're mutually exclusive.
One can have a roasted maple neck, a flamed maple neck, or a roasted & flamed maple neck.
personally I like roasted birds eye.
and roasted flamed maple:
Roasted. For performance reasons.
Typically the flamed necks are a little less stable than a plain hard maple. Roasted is more stable than plain hard maple. I go for the option with maximum stability..
I love my roasted maple necks. OTOH, it is hard to deny the beauty of a good flame maple....
Eye candy or stability? Hmmmmmm
I have 2 piece flamed which is very stable, down to the glue strength holding it together and I have 1 piece flamed which is not so stable.
I would like 2 piece roasted birdseye for a change
Are roasted necks as stable as quarter sawn?
I love the looks of flamed maple. I also love the feel of my unfinished roasted maple neck that I sanded up to 2000 grit. The next logical step would be roasted flame maple.
I believe more so, if I'm not mistaken. Quartersawn has better stability/strength against string tension, but apparently trades off some stability to 'twisting' compared to flatsawn. Roasted should be more stable all around, twisting, string tension, and less susceptible to humidity/climate changes.
Oh, and then there's also the fact you can get roasted quarter sawn. I believe warmoth will do this if you specify, for a reasonable upcharge
Very tasty.What pickguard do you have?Wanna See an abalone pickguard?
neither are mine unfortunately.
I have a variety of fun guitars but none of them have necks that look like that.
The closest I get is the light birds eye on my kiesel vader jb:
Plain roasted for me. I don't like flames or birdseyes, just the odd fleck here and there. That goes for necks, bodies, tops.
Flame for me. They take a while longer to get settled in, but once they do they are gorgeous.
They aren't mutually exclusive but I am not a fan of flames so plain roasted for me.
